There is an ocean hidden
in your veins, a coyote
in your mind, an oak in
your belly, a sparrow in
the hollow of your throat.
Bring them here, to the
ragged edge of the continent,
to your home, and set them free

I made a series of small pendants to wear close to the heart--they are small enough to wear every day and delight the wearer with a little mechanical scene that evokes the wonder of childhood.  When you turn the crank, perhaps it is a boat that sails on the waves, or a crab that scuttle through the seafan coral, or a bird that moves through the leafy tree. There are words on the reverse of each pendant opening up the mind to all that is possible...See the video below.
